Supervisor role (Current Employee) –  Sale7 February 2018
Overall good company to work for, management team help you to progress. However I don't feel like the wage is good enough for the amount of pressure they put on you.

Nice place to work
Christmas Temp (Former Employee) –  Leeds And Bradford, Yorkshire1 February 2018
Was good during Christmas but then people start complaining mainly the older people in their sixties, who just wanna make your life hard.

Other than that nice place, decent break times and nice young workers who never complain.

Managers also nice who help whenever they have the time.
Pros
Decent breaks and wages
Cons
Senior workers.

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  London27 January 2018
Overall the experience was good. Not for the faint-hearted, as the job requires you to move around alot because locating items using the talkman system can be daunting especially if the items has been placed in the wrong place.
Pros
None
Cons
They didnt fully pay over time hours

Not a nice place to work
Temporary customer service (Former Employee) –  Teesside, North Yorkshire25 January 2018
The staff aren't that friendly. The work load and hours aren't equal. You weren't given long enough breaks for how long you were there. Rotas weren't up with enough time to make any plans or appointments needed.
Pros
Staff discount
Cons
Management, work load, hours.

hardworking, fast-paced but enjoyable environment.
Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  Swindon, Wiltshire23 January 2018
Was able to work during peak periods where the whole team where challenged yet was taught and performed that during busy periods the customer remains priority. Regular reviews on both individual and store targets meant you were always wanting to improve. this occasionally can be intense but it is important to remain balanced.
Pros
discounts at all home retail groups
Cons
salary for u18 is quite low

Was okay for first job, but definitely not worth it all !
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Swindon, Wiltshire18 January 2018
When I worked as a Christmas temp, settling into work was pretty easy, but could be very difficult as well. I used to work very long hours on weekends and that was the worst time you could ever work in the week. People coming in late, being very blunt with you, too much messing around and people not taking their work seriously. If you made a mistake management wasn't worried so much, but the speed they expect you to work at for the company is absolutely ridiculous. Salary was very low and week considering the job you are doing and especially if you are working long hours and are in the back part of the store. As well as that, I found myself being called in for shifts I weren't even put down for, and management would be really mad if you called in sick and would expect you to come in regardless of your circumstances. Health and safety was very poor, company in training forces you to do everything until you are trained and then they are not concerned about your health and safety.
Pros
aloud to leave store on break
Cons
breaks weren't scheduled, pay was very low, dangerously poor H&S standards, and horrible management team.

Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London14 January 2018
It takes you an entire life to progress in this company, It's definitely a pick & choose who they want to promote, hard work isn't recognized at all, the area managers are so unprofessional its unbelievable, after 8 years in this company they have only given a raise once and are not willing to invest in you. very poor senior management in this organisation.

Cons

Not a bad job
Retail Assistant (Former Employee) –  London12 January 2018
Ideal job for students who can afford to have a 10h contract. Salary not awesome but not bad. It's an easy job, only 4/5h shift which is really nice. Staff discount is not great.

Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lowestoft11 January 2018
Either not enough work to do or to much work to do in the time of your shift. Highly unrealistic targets to help 'progression'. There is always talk of people being laid off or made redundant. The staff discounts and benefits are atrocious. In other works, do not apply for a job.
Cons
Rude Staff
